Antonio Conte has now gone seven games unbeaten at the start of his reign at Tottenham, more than any other manager in the club’s history.
The Italian has quickly been able to turn around Tottenham’s fortunes and has made the North Londoners solid defensively as well as potent going forward.
Spurs have now won four and drawn three of their Premier League matches under Conte, and they find themselves very much involved in the race for the top-four, sitting five points behind Arsenal in fourth place, with two games in hand over the Gunners.
However, the Lilywhites would have felt disappointed not to narrow the gap to fourth place as they were held to a draw by a ten-men Southampton at the St Mary’s.
The 52-year-old admitted after the game that he was frustrated at his side’s inability to make their numerical superiority count against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.
However, despite the draw against the Saints, Conte has now gone seven matches unbeaten as Spurs boss, which according to Sky Sports, is the longest run of any new manager in Tottenham’s history.
The former Inter boss will be hoping to continue building on the positive start to his reign at Spurs, with a trip to Vicarage Road being their next test on Saturday.

I do not think Conte will take too much pleasure from this record, given his obsession with winning. The draw at St Mary’s will feel like a loss for the Italian. Hopefully, we will be able to put things right against Watford on Saturday.
